"the abc's of me" meme

I've been tagged by Erin to do this meme (for those of you who don't know what a "meme" is -- I sure didn't when I first heard the word -- it's just one of those surveys to find out more about your friends), so I hope you'll find something new and interesting while reading it.

A - Age: 28

B - Band listening to right now: none, but I can hear Treehouse coming from the next room

C - Career future: mother (and apparantly an accountant if Les has anything to say about it)

D - Dad's name: Peter

E - Easiest person to talk to: My husband

F - Favorite song: it always changes -- there are so many awesome songs out there

G - Gummy Bears or Gummy Worms: worms

H - Hometown: Small town, Manitoba, Canada

I - Instruments: clarinet (in high school...and I've lost it since then -- the instrument itself, not my ability, although I'm sure that's gone out the window now too, so I haven't played it in almost a decade!!) and of course the piano
J - Job: mother, office job

K - Kids: 2 lovely daughters -- Joelle and Malia

L - Longest car ride ever: To Mexico -- TWICE

M - Mom's name: Helen

R - Reason to smile: Family, friends, good health, assured salvation through Jesus Christ

S - Song you sang last: "The Lord Loves Me" in church this morning

T - Time you wake up: Oh, this is a tricky one...ready? 7:30 on Sundays, 6:30 on Tuesdays, 6:50 on every other Wednesday and 3 out of 5 Fridays, 7:10 the other 2 out of 5 Fridays, and between 7:30-8:00 on Mondays, the other Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Got it all straight?

U - Unknown fact about me: Unknown to some people -- I had a bilateral reimplantaion surgery when I was a year old

V - Vegetable you hate: onions

W - Worst habit: biting my nails

X - X-rays you've had: ones of my wisdom teeth and just this week a CT scan (does that count as an X-Ray?)

Y - Yummy food: mexican, pizza, chocolate fondue

Okay Erin, I did it!! Now I'm supposed to tag someone else -- so Jamie and Ruth, I'd love to hear your responses.

Don't know if I told you Andrea... but if you ever go to Grand Forks/Fargo... "Paridisio" has the BEST mexican food! I'm going to Grand Forks in 2 weeks, yum yum!

Andrea said...

Jackie -- we have been there once before 3 years ago. I keep dreaming about it ever since and I can't wait to go again!! I'm jealous that you get to go there in a couple of weeks...wanna bring me back a doggie bag? :)

Although, for a closer taste of Mexican -- Winkler has a tasty little restaurant too which is called "Del Rios".

Louise said...

Fun fun, I like reading those!
I may just have to post that one!
Have a great week!

Erin said...

Very nice! Mmm...Mexican food. Hey Andrea, we should have gone to Grand Forks the other day when we were joking about it.

What the heck is a 'bilateral reimplantation?!'

Andrea said...

A bilateral implantation...I knew someone was going to ask about that!! Well, I don't even know exactly (I've asked my mom on numerous occasions, but I keep forgetting). But the reason I had to have it was because I had 3 urethras and one of them was retracting which was causing a lot of bladder and kidney infections. I have some nice scars to show for it.

ValleyGirl said...

How many urethras are we supposed to have? (don't remember much from junior high science!) Huh. So you were a bit of a freak of nature then, eh? Haha, I kid, of course. At least you have something interesting to report when asked if there's little known or unknown facts about you!!
